Alysia Simmons completes 18.1 Miles in 5:19:47
Event: Devil Dog Double held 05/08/2021
Sponsored in Columbia, MO
This was a new challenge for me. I did this with my sister, my daughter, & my nephew.
We started this event early in the morning and it was a little chilly but not too bad. Then about 4.5 miles into it, it started raining! Then it got really cold as the wind picked up and the rain got heavier! LOL! But, then the rain stopped and by mile 14, the sun came out! First time doing an event in the rain and I have to say it wasn't that bad.
I will do this event again. I will need more training next time. When I saw the pride on my daughters' and my nephew's faces, I knew that signing them up was absolutely the right choice! They were beaming with pride and it warmed my heart to see it! So glad we did this together!!!
